SALT LAKE CITY � August 16, 2004 � Parvus� Corp. today announced the expected release of its CFII-IDE� remote CompactFlash� to IDE adapter, flexibly designed with both 40-pin (0.10") and 44-pin (2mm) IDE connectors. Fully compatible with Type I and Type II cards, the adapter enables both solid-state CompactFlash and IBM� Microdrive� media to be used as a bootable IDE (ATA) disk drive in any computer with an IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) interface.

This low-cost, highly functional product features power and drive activity LED indicators, a master/slave selection jumper, four mounting holes, and front panel mounting brackets. Transparent to the operating system (OS), the CFII-IDE does not require any device drivers to work with DOS�, Windows�, Linux�, and any other PC-based operating systems. A CompactFlash card appears as a small IDE hard disk drive to the BIOS and OS.

The product�s small size and versatile design make it an ideal solution for embedded systems requiring reliable, removable Flash memory storage. CompactFlash provides a robust, low-current, low-operating temperature, and highly reliable storage solution for embedded computing applications.
